Rosa Manzo: Mentoring Mexican Parents and Students

Rosa Manzo, PhD candidate, has always wanted to help Mexican Americans have access to education, but she never dreamed she’d be back in her hometown to accomplish the goal.

In Fresno County, she’s developing workshops for immigrant parents so effective that UC Davis has received a $100,000 grant from the Fresno Regional Foundation to expand the model to other county schools.

The Ph.D. student is also mentoring UC Davis students from rural Fresno high schools by encouraging them to follow in her footsteps by going to graduate school. Read her story here.

You can also find Rosa’s story among others that highlight UC Davis’s impact on California here.
